Winnipeg Underground Film Festival: BEND TO EARTH

Sun, Jun 3 / 6:30 pm

BEND TO EARTH
Book-ended by recollections from the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock, this selection of four videos examines relationships between earth and human processes, technology and geology, physical and emotional pain. Personal reflection and concepts of distance are explored while tracing the extraction of oil, ore, mineral and memory. I have a very strange relationship to this rock. New work from Canada, France and the United States.

A trip from the exploitation of iron to its transfer to the ocean aboard the longest train in the world. The ancient device of the pinhole is used to provide an unusual perception of the desert, populated by machines and men. -JR

The Making and Unmaking of the Earth dir. Jessica Bardsley
2018 | US | 16.5 min | video | Canadian premiere
Combining archival footage of earth processes with interviews of mysterious experiences of physical and emotional pain, this film turns to the earth and its geology to make visible the often invisible events happening inside of people. -JB

Dislocation Blues dir. Sky Hopinka
2017 | US | 17 min | video | Canadian premiere
An incomplete and imperfect portrait of reflections from Standing Rock. Cleo Keahna recounts his experiences entering, being at, and leaving the camp and the difficulties and the reluctance in looking back with a clear and critical eye. Terry Running Wild describes what his camp is like, and what he hopes it will become. -SH
